5388-5397 (8) were owned by Ontario Hydro and originally
operated by CP Rail to haul unit trains of coal to Thunder Bay thence
via ship to electric generating plants. They were not painted for Ontario
Hydro and operated on any CP Rail freight trains. Hydro's ownership of
these units simply guaranteed that there would always be units available
to move their coal.
The freight contract for most of these unit trains changed to CN and 6 units were transferred in May 1996.
